After having missed a butterfly brooch workshop last year with Jenny Adin-Christie – I was really pleased to find that she sold kits for her designs. So…. I decided to treat myself to one, well two actually – I just couldn’t resist! The kits arrived beautifully packaged in a little calico bag.
Everything you need to complete the project comes in individually labelled packets and judging by what was left after finishing the first round brooch – there is probably enough to make a second brooch!
The instructions are all fully illustrated for each step of the process and very easy to follow – so nothing is left to chance. I have only tried my hand at goldwork once before – and would thoroughly recommend anyone to have a go at one of the above kits.
Dealing with Jenny was also a pleasure, she was happy to give advice throughout and able to provide additional items to get the project started straight away.
Sew…..here are my results so far. I am quite pleased, although can spot a few mistakes that I have made along the way. But I am now keen to get started on the butterfly brooch. I have not shown all the stages of completing the brooch as Jenny has obviously put a lot of work into the design and make up of her kits.
